We have visited Nymans many times over 30 years. It has become very popular. It is compact, relatively flat, has interesting horticulture and attractive settings. The typical NT food is nothing to write home about but the volunteers try hard.

Being National Trust members we visited Nymans to view the early spring flowers and winter shrubs and we were not disappointed. Much larger than I imagined it would be and with limited mobility we were very grateful for the buggy service that was provided and took us around the whole estate. The volunteer staff were really helpful and friendly and... More

Went here with my mother recently and it was a lovely sunny day. Even though the house is very small as most of it was destroyed, the gardens make up for it. Lovely for a walk around, we went with a guided walking tour who was very knowledgable about all the plants and history of Nymans. Would definitely go back... More

This National Trust property and grounds are a great place to visit with the family. Beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and into the valley. The giant sequoia trees stand up like giant Christmas trees or candles on a cake! What remains of the house itself is a bit run down, but it is as genuine a piece of recent... More

On a warm Spring day the Magnolia trees looked at their best.There was no shortage of colour on the ground either from daffodils, tulips,primroses,heathers and other spring flowers. I would suggest you get there early as the car park today looked very full by 11.15 today.

The gardens are in very good condition at the moment, many of the trees are in bloom. Will look even better as summer comes along as more will be out.

A great day out for everyone. Lovely gardens and walks with two guided walks daily. You can visit the woods for woodland walks, peace and quiet if you want it. There is a good secondhand book shop and a nice cafe with wonderful scones. A lovely visit at any time of the year.

We decided to go for a walk in one of the numerous national trust places and we found this majestic place with its very if Idyllic areas. The grounds have been well kept and the entrance area has modernization and it shows of nice clean. There is a house in which the messel family lived in the 1920's . The... More

Have visiting Nymans for years and the kids thoroughly enjoy the yearly easter egg hunt and this year was no exception. The day out was lovely and the staff were very helpful.

Myself and my partner visited here as we were in the area with an hour to spare. Its a large site with many features. It was cold when we popped in and too early to enjoy the garden in all its glory with the exception of the very grand Magnolia trees. They have the usual onsite shop, this one with... More
